What is Databases A–Z?


Databases A–Z is a service where you find the databases, platforms and other online services which the libraries at Lund University consider essential to their respective subjects.

You access Databases A–Z by clicking Databases A–Z in LUBsearch or via Lund University Library’s web page.



Searching and finding databases in Databases A–Z


There are several different ways of using Databases A–Z; you can use one of the following methods to find what you are looking for:

  • Search for a database/platform/online service
  • Use the alphabetical list
  • Use the subject categories


If you want to search for a resource, use the search window at the top of the page. Here you can either search for the name of the database/platform/online service or for a subject word.


You can browse the alphabetical list by clicking on a letter and getting all the databases/platforms/online services which start with that letter in a list in alphabetical order.


If you are looking for databases within a specific subject area, you can select a subject from the categories in the drop down menu.


The subject category leads to a list of databases and online services within the subject area. For some subject areas, new, narrower subject categories appear and clicking on one of these subcategories gets you a list in alphabetical order of relevant databases and online services.
